“I must say my musical vocabulary has been enhanced thanks to the amazing sound JodyJazz mouthpieces. Your mouthpieces bring life to my music!”

“Jody Just purchased a Tenor DV and an HR mpc for my late model Mark VI from wwbw. I want to share my experience with you. I use the HR when playing along with my sax students but the DV is for me. Like most sax players the perfect mpc is the holy grail…………I know you’ve heard this many times. I was reluctant to switch from my Sugal which I’ve played for years but was frustrated with a weak low end and inconsistent altisimo. So I gambled and tried your 7* DV which is not as open as my Sugal at 118. But I wanted a fatter and more reliable low end. The DV came through. It took a little experimenting with reeds. My broken in reeds didn’t play very well and I realized that a stiffer reed was required. I’m using Alexander and Rico Jazz #3. They do the job. I do a smooth/contemporary jazz gig and the projection is great and amazingly the speed of my playing has greatly improved. The notes seem to pop out almost before I hit them. The stuffiness of middle D is gone. I thought it was a leak in the horn or just the nature of my “VI”. But I now have a solid middle D !! I’m also discovering improved intonation on palm keys and higher. Truly a great mpc. For the HR I found a good set up using Alexander NY reeds. It’s a sweet mpc, very versatile, but I need to spend more time with it. Regards”

“The tone through each one of my saxophones starts by entering one of Jody’s fabulous mouthpieces. With a variety of styles, and materials, I’m confident that there is a mouthpiece in his catalogue to be paired with any saxophonist’s horn. All of my JodyJazz mouthpieces are free blowing, and beautifully hand crafted. My main sax is the tenor. From the first time playing it, I loved the DV Tenor 7*. My sound was warmer, but could project louder AND speak softer. Articulations were easier to pronounce, and my altissimo notes grew in range and beauty. Curious, I tried the DV CHI Tenor 7*, and loved it as well. I play on this as my main piece, and it pairs nicely with my silver Selmer horn. In 2014, I played tenor and baritone sax with Canadian singing icon Gino Vannelli. This was the first time that I played the bari sax, and it wasn’t easy until I picked up a DV Baritone 8 mouthpiece. The DV made it easy to blow a beautiful tone through the sax, while I only needed to focus on the music. One of the trickier saxes; the soprano, needs a lot of focus and dedication to hone a personalized tone, with good intonation. When I switched from a reputable manufacturer, to the DV Soprano 7*, I was able to work on my sound, instead of fighting with the technical difficulties the soprano sax. This mouthpiece darkened the tones and made the instrument less ‘nasal’, and super fun to play. I seldom play the alto, but when I do, I can ease into it with a DV Alto 7 mouthpiece. Switching between the different JodyJazz mouthpieces is easy and comfortable. Thank you Mr. Espina, and your fantastic staff for your contributions to the saxophone community!”

“Finally I’ve found the perfect combination of tenor mouthpieces for every situation. Using the DV Tenor 7* for rock, pop and contemporary jazz gives me all the power and precision I could ever want. The HR Alto 6M is great for intimate acoustic settings and a warmer, sound. With both of these in my case, I’m ready for any gig.”

“As soon as I heard a friend playing his new JodyJazz mouthpiece I asked what had changed. I ran to a dealer and immediately fell in love with it. It’s hard to believe that one mouthpiece can offer such a wide color range–dark and warm to bright and bold, soft & tender to loud and powerful–and be so consistent top to bottom and so freeblowing and have such a big center, all at the same time. Altissimo too! My tenor Classic and my Alto DV have made my sound more voicelike, and invariably the first thing that listeners respond to in my sax playing. I’m trying the DV on tenor next!.”
